If you just bought the laptop, then it is still covered by a warranty. Then all you have to do is contact the seller or directly to dell. This is the fastest and most appropriate way, and usually you will get one-to-one replacement (they will replace your laptop with new one). But, please make sure by contacting Dell.

You might have to reformat the drive sounds like you got a virus in your boot sector on the hard drive.
I hope you backed up everything you needed. when ya get it running again get an external drive and make regular backups of your stuff.Where did it move the files to ? you should have a backup of your system on your harddrive that came with the machine when you bought it ,try to reformat with this sector of the hard drive its called d: backup

Right click the hd in my computer
click security tab
see the permissions your account has got on the hd.
if your account is part of administrators group you can add your account, get full control on the hd or take ownership of the drive.

It is possible that the HD has failed completely. However, this is a relatively new laptop, so I would suspect that is not the case. Sometimes the HD will lose contact for one reason or another. This can usually be cured by removing the HD and reinstalling it, which will remove any crud from the contacts.
If the machine is still under warranty, call Dell support. They will walk you through diagnostics to determine the actual problem.
If you're not sure of the warranty status, go here:

SOURCE: no internal hard disk found
Use the Vista CD to create the new partition, but first you have to delete the old partition first, (the 220GB partition not the 10GB one because that will be the recovery partition).
Get a calculator and work out your new partition, for example 50GB is 50x1024MB so that will be 51200MB.
When you have deleted the 220GB partition select NEW and input your newly worked out partition and carry on from there, to activate the other partition just format it.
Please post back with the results and for anymore help if needed.
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
